The William Heath Robinson Trust

The William Heath Robinson Trust

The William Heath Robinson Trust was set up to:

  • conserve and exhibit the collection of works of William Heath Robinson made by his daughter Joan Brinsmead;
  • add to that collection;
  • foster study of the artist and his work and
  • publicise his achievements

The collection, following the acquisition of the Simon Heneage Collection, comprises nearly 1,000 items of Heath Robinson’s original works, including copies of books he illustrated and examples of his advertising work. It spans 40 years and covers all aspects of his work. The Trust is actively supporting the West House & Heath Robinson Museum Trust and has given its collection on permanent loan to be displayed in the restored West House.

Currently only some 20 examples of his work can be shown in the small Gallery.  A new Museum to show Heath Robinson’s work in more detail, as well as related special exhibitions, is now being built next to West House.
